Stepping back from long-range plans to reset your priorities may slow you down this month, but it'll ultimately save you considerable time and energy. Mercury, the information planet, turns retrograde in your 10th House of Career on November 6 to bring unfinished business into the foreground. Tying up loose ends and clarifying communications at work can be frustrating, but it's the only way you can maintain a reasonable level of comfort.
Mercury returns to your 9th House of Adventure on November 14, urging you to examine the relationship between your current reality and your ideals. When the Messenger turns direct on November 26, you can begin moving forward with a greater sense of purpose. On November 13, the provocative Scorpio New Moon Solar Eclipse activates your 9th House, reminding you of unfulfilled promises you made to yourself. If you're hungering for travel, learning, or other experiences beyond your work and daily duties, it may be time to commit to fulfilling those desires -- or perhaps to cut those dreams loose and move on with your life.
You'll experience healthy competition with colleagues on November 16, when hardworking Mars enters ambitious Capricorn and your 11th House of Groups. If you can raise the level of your game, however, you'll earn respect and support to advance your interests in the future.
The Sun's entry into exuberant Sagittarius and your professional 10th House on November 21 is another signal to be more assertive at work. Still, the changeable Gemini Full Moon Eclipse on November 28 lights up your 4th House of Roots, stirring up a variety of issues at home. Stressful lunar aspects from hyperactive Mars and restrictive Saturn reflect the importance of completing current obligations before you take on anything more.
Keep in Mind this Month
Look into the bottom of your heart where your deepest desires lie, for that's where you can find the passion and power to achieve success.
Key Dates for Pisces
November 9: Generous to a Fault
You feel like a lottery winner with a rewarding trine between delightful Venus and bountiful Jupiter. Just don't give away your winnings too quickly; this lucky transit is followed by a delusional Venus-Neptune aspect that makes it easy to forget how hard you've worked for the respect, money, or pleasure that you're receiving. Make sure the recipient of your largesse -- whether it's material or emotional -- is worthy of your affection and attention.
SUPER NOVA DAYS
November 13-14: Process of Elimination
The truth may be staring right back at you on November 13, yet you still find it extremely hard to see. The transformational Scorpio New Moon in your 9th House of Journeys can arouse feelings you don't readily understand, especially while retrograde Mercury forms a fact-fuzzy square with diffusive Neptune. This lunation, a total Solar Eclipse, can expose unfilled needs that may be too painful to face. However, you'll clear space for more achievable aspirations once you recognize which unrealistic goals need to be deleted from your list. A contentious Sun-Pluto semisquare on November 14 might trigger a power struggle, but it also backs up the idea that letting go is the way to grow.
